About this project

This Comic Is Finished, Proofed & Ready To Be Printed With Your Help!

CatMan Evolution #1 is…

  • A very modern and original take on bringing the classic superhero into today’s world. CatMan Evolution introduces us to Darren Merrywether, the grandson of the original 1950’s character from Holyoke Comics. That has fallen into public domain. Darren is the heir to both the Merrywether Foundation, and the legacy of being CatMan.
  • A cutting edge comic, focused on mainstream quality crime/action stories, with independent creativity, freedom and originality. This character is trying to find his own path, while living in the shadow of his grandfather’s, as well as dealing with the internal clash between his human morality and his feral spirit’s thirst for blood.
  • The first in a new line of unique creations that are contained in the amazing FireStorm Comics Universe. Acclaimed Paranormal Romance Novelist Veronica Massey, came to my attention when I needed someone to co-plot and script the title with. She has a life-long love for comics and wanted to jump in with a crime/action titles. She writes action comics as well as any other professional scribe currently in the comics industry. Veronica and I have put together a solid storyline and developed CatMan to hold up against anything on the shelves to date.

Here’s what we've got…

 This comic book is completely ready to go to print. We are so set on our mission to make this book make the long haul; we are currently in the end phases of issue # 2 and beginning production on issue # 3.

See, we are creating comics that we want to read, that fill that void for something new, original and exciting. Our mission is to create comics with mainstream quality and indie freedom and creativity, as well as help promote community over competition in the industry. It should be our focus to create and produce amazing comics that we can not only be fans of but, support ourselves and our industry with.

This is the first comic book represents that mission for us.

Here's what the funds are required for...

The funds are for printing and wage costs of the team that worked with me to produce this book so that we can continue doing what we love and bring more great comics to the market. We have produced multiple issues of this title, as previously mentioned and are finally ready to bring them out to the fans...that's you guys, so that we can enjoy great comics!

We have all of the rewards and the printing production orders already setup and ready to go with litho ninja, printninja, jakprints, cafe express and a local t-shirt/hat printing shop for the books, shirts, cards, and posters. We have everything ready to be packaged and shipped immediately, once received from the manufacturing resource.

The difference of these funds are set for fees for Amazon/Kickstarter's share. 

Here’s what’s in it for you…COMICS & REWARDS!!!

We have a solid list of the following offers. Be sure and read through the rewards to see what you are interested in getting and finding a comfortable donation level that agrees with you! Here’s what you can pick from:

Stretch Goals…

· $6,500 – We will be adding a special NEVER BEFORE SEEN extra 3 card set to everyone’s order! ( Standard Shipping Will Apply - $5 US/$10 Worldwide to $5 Pledges changing from digital to printed rewards)

· $7,500 – We will be adding those same 3 special cards and an additional PRINTED EDITION of FSU:ORIGIN! (Standard Shipping Will Apply - $5 US/$10 Worldwide to $5 Pledges changing from digital to printed rewards)

· $10,000 – We will add 6 more cards, (total of 9 in all), the FSU: ORIGIN printed edition, ALL SIGNED and NUMBERED so that you will be the only ones to ever have that set and that printed version. ( Standard Shipping Will Apply - $5 US/$10 Worldwide to $5 Pledges changing from digital to printed rewards)

Risks and challenges

The risk is all on us, as this comics is completed and at the printer simply waiting for the orders to be placed once the funding is released a successful campaign. This will allow us to give the green light on those pending orders to be set and fulfilled.My team and I have pushed and fought and slaved to complete this project with this particular issue, as two artists flaked, another one that you are seeing the art for here literally vanished on us at page 18, which I finished out the book, to make sure it continued, until Melvin could come on as our cover artist and regular penciler.

We are here to bring our fans, just like us, comics that are made of mainstream quality and indie creativity and freedom, filling that void that has been in our industry for so long due to multiple limitations indie creators have getting material out there on the market.

We bring the heart, the drive and a solid production plan to bringing these books to life. I've got multiple outlets lined up to get the t-shirts, cards and books produced immediately once the funds are released to us for use.

All of the digital comic orders will be fulfilled before the Jan. 2015 delivery deadline. All of the physical materials will be shipped as soon as they come in from the manufacturing facilities and are back in my offices, so they can be processed and shipped.
